There will be five authors available for discussion during Part 3 of Authorstock. This will be held on Sunday, April 28th, 2019 from 3pm to 6pm
These authors are:
Sheryl Lynn Kimball enjoys writing stories about friendship and things that go bump in the night. She is currently working on a YA series centered around an enchanted book that appears to two best friends and leads them on a ghostly witch-filled adventure.
She is also working on a sequel to Honor The Rising Sun, as well as a book series of personal essays about her experience with binge eating disorder, and several other half-finished projects she has accumulated over the years. Stay tuned!
Mary Ann Mayer
Mary Ann Mayer’s most recent collection is Salt & Altitudes (Finishing Line Press, 2014). Her poems, essays, and translations have been widely published. Her honors include the GrubStreet “Blue Period” Poetry Prize, a Massachusetts Cultural Council grant, and Massachusetts Book Award and Pushcart Prize nominations. She has been a finalist for the May Sarton New Hampshire Book Award.
Mary Ann is an editor for Crosswinds Poetry Journal and volunteers with the Ocean State poets, promoting poetry in underserved communities. She was raised in Rhode Island.
Newly retired from her occupational therapy practice, she divides her time between Sharon, MA and Franconia, NH.
Robbin Miller is a mother of EJ who attended a structured playgroup in early intervention when he was five months old. Though EJ screened out to be eligible for early intervention as a baby, Robbin wanted EJ to participate in an active playgroup that focused on building social, cognitive, and fine and motor gross skills development with other babies with/out disabilities.
Robbin is also a licensed mental health counselor in private practice and serves as an adjunct faculty member for a local community college. Robbin is also married as she dedicates her picture book to her husband, EJ, and to her mother who passed away from cancer.
Lily Penter is a retired software engineer and a native New Englander.
Lily lives in Massachusetts with her husband, a Bernese Mountain dog (partly) and a spotted alley cat.
She has two grown children and is fortunate enough to live only three miles from her delightfully perfect granddaughter.
This is Phil Strangolagalli’s first book and it was never planned.
Phil is recently married to his beautiful wife, Kathryn (the real Wonder Woman) and they don’t live far from the Daily Bugle. In Phil’s spare time you can find him taking long walks in the movie theater, teaching his wife about the complexity of film, and talking to strangers.
Phil is excited for how this book will reveal to you a side of Jesus that he believes people must know—an intimate, fun, actually very real God.
A former newspaper reporter and business owner, she has been researching the subject of happiness for the past several years. Pouring over hundreds of books covering everything from ancient teachings to modern scientific studies, she believes the answer to attaining true and long-lasting happiness lies in the images people hold in their subconscious minds.
After years of dedicated study, she has developed her own unique style of visualizations. Simply Being Happy is her guidebook to teach others the techniques for replacing their negative images with new, bright, and powerful ones to create more happiness in their lives.
Paula and her husband, Jim, have been married for twenty-three years and have three grown children. They reside in Blackstone, Massachusetts.
